Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert’s pending divorce news came just hours before a trailer of their new reality show was released, fueling speculation separation talk may be just about ginning up excitement for the show.
Celebrity Insider reports the fact that the couple’s “irreconcilable differences” became too much for them to overcome just before Tamar and Vince is set to air has some believing all the coincidences could be a little too convenient.
In the promo for the show, Braxton can be seen taking off her wedding ring and placing it on a counter, even though the separation was only recently announced and the scenes for the show were presumably shot months ago.
TMZ also reports three of Braxton sisters recently arrived in L.A. to offer emotional support to her, where one of them let slip that “viewers will be able to see what the problem between the couple is on the next season of Braxton Family Values.”
Braxton is also close pals with Tiny Harris, wife of hip-hop star T.I., a couple that went through a similar bad patch and seemed destined for a divorce before reconciling and launching a new season of their Family Hustle reality show that registered its highest ratings in years.
Before news of their separation became public, Braxton and Herbert placed their Calabasas mansion on the market amid persistent rumors they were struggling financially.
The Grio reported the Hollywood couple is offering up their home for a cool $15 million, after being hit with multiple default notices.
The sale comes just weeks after Herbert was ordered to pay back a $3.7 million advance he received from Sony Music back in 2013 for bringing new talent to the label.
TMZ has reported the court ordered Herbert to fork over the money in a default judgment after he failed to appear for the proceedings.
Clauses in the deal called for Sony to at least partially be paid back through payments Herbert was owed by Interscope Records for other work. The suit alleged that Herbert breached the Sony arrangement when he started intercepting the Interscope payments in 2015.
